Fancy learning a great, practical new skill? Learn to make traditional cold process, unique hot process soap or both for yourself or your friends and family? And yes - you will also get a great recipe for soap for your dog or horse?
I offer half day hot or cold process soap making at £65pp or full day courses where you will make soap using both methods at £115. Hot/cold drinks and cake included.
My soap making workshops are held in my soap studio at 33 Great Cranford Street, Poundbury, Dorchester, Dorset DT1 3SQ
You will be welcomed with a tea, coffee and of course cake!
You will learn the science behind the soap and how to use it. Information about the different butters and oils you will be using and how they affect your finished soap. How to use lye safely and what equipment you need.
An insight into using essential oils in your soaps and advice about how to create your own blends.
An introduction to using natural ingredients such as clays to colour your soap.
Every participant will receive a comprehensive workbook covering everything you need to make both cold and hot process soap plus useful resources.
You will watch a demo of how to make your hot or cold process soap depending on your course option and then go on to make your own batch of palm oil free soap using a selections of essential oils and botanicals of your choice. I will be on hand throughout out to offer advice and guidance. You are free to choose whether to make soap for yourself or your dog on the day. Either way your workshop notes will include recipes for both so you can continue your soap making journey at home.
You will take home approximately 1200g or 2400g of soap you have made depending on whether you have chosen the half or full day course. The cost to buy this volume of ready made soap would be £45 or £90 making this a great value workshop.
You will also be able to purchase sufficient ingredients on the day to make another batch of soap at home if you have caught the soap making bug.
And finally you will be invited to join my dedicated facebook group where I will always be on hand to answer any questions and give advice. You will also be encouraged to share your soap making success stories when you are back home.
New dates will be released as confirmed dates fill up. If you are having trouble booking on a course it will be due to the course being either booked up or there are not enough spaces left for your requirements.
If you have a small group and would like a private course - please do get in touch and I will do my best to fit you in on a date convenient for you.
Not sure which method of learning is right for you - why not watch my You Tube video giving you a little more information.
The Red Tape!
